Current Role at StanfordCurrent Role: Biosafety & Biosecurity Specialist
I have been a Biosafety & Biosecurity Specialist within the Department of Environmental Health and Safety at Stanford University since 2012. I support the ongoing development and implementation of Stanford's Biosafety & Biosecurity Program and ensure safe practices, understanding, and compliance for work done using infectious agents and recombinant DNA.
In my research support role, I aid Stanford Faculty, Staff, Post-doctoral Researchers, Grad Students and Undergraduates by conducting on-site "Biovisits", reviewing Administrative Panel on Biosafety (APB) approved projects, addressing training needs and research protocol safety deficiencies, acting as an APB voting member or administrator as needed, recommending and implementing ABSL2 trainings, and managing the APB online protocol site for updates and maintenance.
In my research compliance role, I act as the Biosafety resource and provide oversight for the Administrative Panel on Laboratory Animal Care (APLAC/IACUC) and Institutional Review Board (IRB) Stem Cell Research Oversight Panel (SCRO), coordinate approvals among APB and APLAC, SCRO and IRB, and review protocols requiring EH&S approval for submission to specific institutions. I also focus on updating Biosafety-related materials or trainings and implementing changes according to regulatory and guidance material as supplied by local, state and federal agencies.
My overall goal in my role as a Biosafety and Biosecurity Specialist is to support the Stanford research community in performing innovative and exciting research safely.
